Can I flush pads, tampons and liners down the toilet?

No, you shouldn't flush them down the toilet. Pads and liners have a plastic backing on them to help prevent leaks. Plastic doesn't get broken down in water so it may cause a blockage.  Tampons can cause blockages and should also never be flushed down the toilet.

Did this help you?
